The Assembly Rooms Theatre is an historic, 220-seat proscenium-arch theatre located at the heart of Durham City. The Assembly Rooms Theatre is the home of Durham Student Theatre and acts as the society’s creative hub for all of their theatrical endeavours. However, the theatre also accommodates for professional touring companies outside of university term time. We don't just host theatrical perfromances, but also have a number of stand up and sketch comedy groups who perform throughout the year.
Situated on North Bailey in the most historic part of Durham, within sight of Durham Cathedral, entering the Assembly Rooms Theatre is like stepping into a another world. Furnished in red velvet with a ceiling to rival the night sky, the Assembly Rooms is an oasis of creativity in the heart of Durham.
